John Grisham is Giving His Book Away for Free to Educate People on an Alternative Cure for Cancer

John Grisham’s latest novel veers far away from his typical courtroom settings to provide information about an alternative cure for cancer — and he thinks it’s so vital, the book is free for everyone.

The Tumor,” Grisham says, is the most important book of his career.

“I write escapist popular fiction that entertains,” Grisham explained in an interview. “It’s entertainment. It doesn’t pretend to be literature or anything else. But ‘The Tumor’ has the potential to one day save or prolong millions of lives.”

Against the advice of his agent, editor, and publisher, Grisham has now offered the book free of charge. It’s unlikely hero is a non-invasive medical device: focused ultrasound. Employed for the treatment of cancer and other diseases, focused ultrasound “uses energy beams to destroy diseased tissues,” reported the Washington Post.

University of Virginia neurosurgeon and friend, Neal Kassell, convinced Grisham to join the Focused Ultrasound Foundation, which he’d formed in 2006, about eight years ago. When Kassell pleaded with Grisham to help raise money for the foundation’s ongoing research, the author balked.

But after studying focused ultrasound and finding serious potential for the treatment method to aid millions of people, Grisham decided there was a better way to help. Thus, “The Tumor” was born.

“I couldn’t think of a better way, in one fell swoop, to create awareness for this technology,” Kassell remarked.

Grisham’s publishing empire warned against the sharp departure from his typical works, worried his audience would be highly critical. But he didn’t listen. This information, he felt, could better serve the public than another entertaining novel.

Though his publishing team has been right to an extent — some fans have reacted as if Grisham set out to personally offend them. Others, however, conveyed gratefulness that the author’s fame could be employed to shine the spotlight on an alternative treatment with the potential to do so much good.

While this is by no means an endorsement for focused ultrasound, it is nonetheless refreshing when alternative treatments make headlines, so people understand there are other methods of treating disease than what are typically recommended.

“Personally, I’m thankful John Grisham used his name recognition to educate me, an average Jane Doe,” said one fan’s review. “This is a prime example of how knowledge translates to power.”

Even more poignantly, on Grisham’s Facebook page, one fan wrote:

“Thank you for writing this. Wish this was available when my dad had brain cancer. I admire you even more.”

Has anyone heard anything about this treatment?  I've ordered the book.

No, but it sounds, haha, like just less invasive surgery to me. If you don't remove the cause it will just come back, but, maybe not more aggressive like with chemo so maybe you can just remove it again? After all it may take quite a while to re manifest and removing the tumour cleanly will remove the symptoms of it so it may work quite well to quickly give you back your quality of life with a minimum of side effects.

Must be a lot better than what the mainstream has now anyway, if it works even this well.

Good enough that it's beginning to raise awareness to other ways of treatment - can't beat City hall  - or can we?
